    Misty morning
    Now and then a breeze
    moving the trees

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    Weekend at home
    Father and son
    Raking leaves next door

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    My friend’s screechy voice
    I hear her long after
    Sitting in my room

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlans)

    Loud flapping sound
    Felt sorry for a bird struggling
    Sellotape it was

    Tshering Dorji  (Thimphu)

    Leaves falling…
    In the evening light
    Autumn

    Karma Tshering (Thimphu)

    Entering Thimphu city
    An old man, a rich man, a child..
    A sunflower in the sun

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    On the back of a truck
    Hitching a ride
    A smiling famer

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    Ding-dong, pause, ding-dong
    An exectant child opens the door
    A man with an electricity bill
    Thimphu Valley
    Man in the taxi together
    Broke down into tears
    Mother left for death

    Tshering Dorji (Thimphu)
    The trees..
    Changing colours..
    On the hills
    .
    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    Ding-dong, pause, ding-dong
    An exectant child opens the door
    A man with an electricity bill
    Karma C W ( Thimphu)

    Flying with us
    Beside the car…
    A pigeon from the memorial chorten.

    Namgay Wangchuk ( Thimphu)

    little too late,
    the bus has stopped…
    time to eat.

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    One quiet 3 AM
    Sitting on a cremation oven
    piercing pain inside my heart

    Sherab Jamtsho ( Thimphu)

    Her piercing looks

    Gentle yet intriguing
    Cutting through my bullshitdp_singye

    Tshering Dorji (Thimphu)

    A singing rivulet
    Meanders with dancing reeds
    Turning prayer wheels

    Karma CW (Thimphu)

    Camera on the display
    Eachtime i wonder
    Maybe a Christmas sale?

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    Widowed so young
    Smiling , she hops on the dance floor
    As if in a sunny sunflower field

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    After a long day…
    Sun set and dry leaves
    Cover my path home

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    Clasped hands,increasing heat
    Hard breathing,faster than ever..
    Tired,a deep glad sigh!

    Karma CW (Thimphu)

    Everytime i pass the corner
    In a white apron…
    The old man at the Italian cafe….

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    Remembering current masters
    Long tailed birds…
    Fly….

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    The picture
    Up on the white screen
    Faces scowling

    Tshering Dolkar (Thimphu)

    Thick forest
    To my left … to my right
    The road in between

    Tshering Dolkar (Thimphu)

    The maize
    Beaten into snack
    Time for tea

    Tshering Dolkar (Thimphu)

    The sun greeting
    The sky in tears
    Laughter!

    Tshering Dolkar (Thimphu)

    letho.8no3ls68m4g00wosookw4gsgs.u6fam1teaiowww84ocsg0480.thRain on the tin roof
    Windows clear
    Peace….

    Tshering Dolkar (Thimphu)

    Tap dancing clumsily
    My fingers on the keyboard
    Winter breeze!

    Tshering Dolkar (Thimphu)

    I hear the trash truck
    breaking glass, crunching metal
    Did I take mine out?

    Chandra DeNap (New Jersey, USA)

    Drifting in from the street
    Greetings…
    Awareness in presence

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)

    A floating hair
    In the air
    Lands on my bed

    Sherab Jamtsho  (Thimphu)

    Hands on steering wheel
    Eyes on a sensual roadside girl
    Bang! Oh my god! Screech!

    Karma CW (Thimphu)

    Solitude Rising over the bay
    Autumn clouds – magnificent and deep
    Yet, they will soon dissolve into emptiness

    Dave (Swansea, UK)

    Singer on the radio
    wishing for deathless life -
    all hell breaks loose

    Kinley Tshering (Thimphu)

    A friend enters,
    as confused as I
    Where am I heading?

    Neten Chhetri (Thimphu)

    broken_glass_bw.7sm5rd37b20w4kcws8gs8ocok.594zrl0ettogcw0wkgwccgk80.thHer cinematic idols
    His lewd remarks
    Blaring music all the way

    Tshering Dorji (Thimphu)

    She sold her poem
    And warmed my night
    For just a euro.

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    Feeling the beat
    Of cold concrete
    My back on the wall

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    Gushing wind
    My poor pears out in the night
    Hold on tight

    Sonam Palden (Den Haag, Netherlands)

    A long holiday
    jaded enthusiasm -
    walk by the river

    Kinley Tshering (Thimphu)

    Amidst misty fog…
    river down the plain emerges -
    nature’s master piece

    Kinley Tshering (Thimphu)

    60

    Himalayan hills
    rising from the plains en route
    to the blue blue sky

    Kinley Tshering (Thimphu)



    Milky white water
    flowing from a great height -
    spectacular fall

    Kinley Tshering (Thimphu)

    Bumpy winding road
    hungry disgruntled drivers
    a jam-packed restaurant

    Kinley Tshering (Thimphu)

    fading away

    Thrilled thumb on keypads
    An expectant lover calls
    Subscriber switched off

    Karma WC (Thimphu)

    Caffeine, milk froth and Nelly Furtado
    Latte’s the name or “turn off the light” Nelly says
    Nokia rings

    Tshering Dorji (Thimphu)

    A father
    Helping his child
    Down the ledge

    Namgay Wangchuk (Thimphu)
